First Man poster unveils Ryan Gosling as astronaut Neil Armstrong

Ryan Gosling is blasting off!

Ryan Gosling is heading into outer space - for his upcoming biopic, First Man. Armstrong, who died in 2012, had a storied career in military, academics and engineering, and went on to become the first person to set foot on the moon in 1969.

The trailer debuted on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!' showing Gosling as Armstrong and the film follows his training to man the Apollo 11 spaceflight. Still, Hansen persisted, and ultimately sent Armstrong a "goody box" featuring some of his writings, including a biography of aviation pioneer Fred Weick. Produced by Wyck Godfrey and Marty Bowen alongside Chazelle and Gosling, First Man opens in theaters on October 12th.




"First Man" was written by Josh Singer ("Spotlight") and Nicole Perlman ("Guardians of the Galaxy"), and also stars Patrick Fugit, Ciaran Hinds, Ethan Embry, and Shea Whigham. It was the first ever authorized biography of Neil Armstrong, and while other books had delved into his NASA missions, Fist Man was the first book to address both his early life, and his life after NASA as well.

Chazelle's filmmaking talents, accompanied by Gosling and Foy's acting chops, are sure to make First Man a memorable, visceral account of one of the most iconic moments in US history - and a top contender come awards season.

Get ready for yet another trailer that gives away the ending.
